Supervision serves many purposes for you as a social worker, the agency that employs you, the people you work with, the communities you work in and for the social work profession.
One important purpose is accountability. I am a supervisor who will make sure that you are operating safely as a social worker and that you are transparent about your work with your clients.
Another important purpose is identification, understanding what you do and why – putting the work that you are doing into a ‘big picture’ and not operating in isolation.

I am committed to creating a safe and contained supervision space, that provides an opportunity for you to critically reflect on practice, and at times consider the overlap with your personal life and experiences. The supervisory space can accommodate many issues; complex case work, professional development, team and colleague challenges, traumatic experience, personal crisis, professional goals, management and leadership, ethical questions, critical decision-making.
I have kept one foot in the practice world and another in the academic world, and I am keen to work with you on your professional and personal development goals. Working with children and families is tough work and I am interested in how we sustain high levels of practice, maintain wellbeing and have fun along the way.
I have been influenced by narrative therapy, strengths based practice, psychodynamic approaches and critical reflection. Core values for me are kindness, honesty and respect.

I am passionate about the empowering impact of effective social work practice at all levels, from the micro-skills of counselling and therapeutic intervention through to the macro-levels of policy. I am interested in the relationship between these different levels of practice and find that I am skilled at identifying the relationships between individuals, groups, contexts, systems and culture and the influence these have on each other. I have an appreciative inquiry approach to my supervision practice, looking at what is working well and building on that, as well as helping people to identify where they would like additional supports or could benefit from making stronger connections to theories, resources or networks. Navigating personal and professional identity as well as supporting safe and effective practice would be a focus of our time together.
I may have some low-cost vacancies for those working in the voluntary sector or on very low wages in the community sector. Please enquire.
